Under 16 Netball County Champions

On a very windy day, a squad of 10 players, minus captain Rosie and regular Antonia took to the courts. The tournament was held on home soil. In the group stages first up were Budehaven. Truro came out strong and played some exceptional netball to win 17-1. Truro then had a 3 game break, they did not prepare well for the next game and local rivals Penair gave them a real fright. Fortunately the girls dug deep and came away with a 7-5 win. Learning from their errors, Truro were better prepared for the remaining matches, defeating Mounts Bay 12-2 and Newquay Tretherras 9-3. Moving onto the semis as group winners, Truro played Truro High School. They were determined to win and make it through to Regionals. All girls worked hard and dominated to win 12-4. Next up a very strong team from Penryn. The game was incredibly close with Truro having the slight edge throughout. Nevertheless Penryn did not give up and came back strong. The score was 9 all with seconds to play when Truro scored to seal the victory and to be once again crowned County Champions. Thanks again to every single girl that played and for the parental support. Regional finals in Bournemouth in January.
